    Illinois

    Has something like 30 total yards several minutes into the 3rd quarter. AGAINST MINNESOTA. Minnesota leads 27-0.

    Illinois started 6-0, I think. I know they had 8 home games this season.

    They will be looking for a new coach and I suspect they'll have Rhoads on their list. I have no doubt he won't be interested in that mess.

    Illinois did start off 6-0 with a close call win against ASU.

    Illinois = very bad football team. 0 and 6 finish, Zook gets fired, will they even accept a bowl invitation?

    Yes they'll accept a Bowl Bid. It would be wrong not to.

    Zook will more than likely be fired the day after they accept a bid.

    Gophers are TOUGH. They beat the hawks.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    That's because it was their superbowl.

    So this is "ISU 2002" for Illinois. (Maybe even worse)

    Glad it happens elsewhere, too.

    Illinois was 6-0 and ranked #16 in the country. The end for them was when they lost to Ohio State and Ohio State only completed 1 pass

    To be honest, I watched UM a few times earlier in the season, not long after those rough home losses to NDSU /NMSU. Looked like one of those teams that had some good parts, but weren't capable of putting it all together consistently, within the same game.

    So I wasn't completely taken aback when the Gophers beat Iowa.

    Indiana is far worse.

    And, apparently, so is Illinois.
